The rest of the bag of dahlias
The first one demonstrates the popular polaroid technique where the featured image is square and matted onto a white rectangle with a small sentiment at the bottom. We used a silver marker around the edge of the square to highlight the dahlia square. The pen was available in the holiday catalog and then on the clearance rack. I love to use it inside a black card like this one. I hope you got yours when they were available because I don't think we sell them anymore.
There is also a tiny flag of red glimmer paper to add a bit of bling and color, coming right off the sentiment, if you look close. You could use a bit of ribbon or bright DSP if you didn't have red sparkly paper, but this works wonderfully to brighten the card!
The second card is also black and white with a bit of red glimmer, layering two identical images of the Regarding Dahlia flower and a sentiment from the same stamp set.
This class was designed to demonstrate how one stamp set and limited supplies could produce beautiful and very trendy or classic cards and quite a variety of cards without having to own a lot of crafting supplies.
